Finally some new goodies to share
I have been making little things here and there over the last week...Still not 100% after this cold...but feeling much better.
Today I decided to play with some wire. I made a base layer of clay, shaped the different with bits and pressed them lightly into the clay. After I finished the design I filled in with Pearl Ex and Perfect Pearl powders. These still need baked yet plus a layer of resin. My camera did not capture the true luster of the colors, but my new table top photo studio should be here this weekend...so hopefully better pics coming shortly!
The Yellow Ribbon and the Patriotic Heart will be pins, and the Rose will be a magnet. I have been scouring stained glass patterns all day for ideas. I want to make a series of Christmas ornaments using this technique too! They are time consuming, but boy are they gorgeous!
Also shown is another of my Christmas ornaments...this one has gorgeous deep pink roses.
And then there is my silly kitty cat! I turned around the other day to find her curled up in this little box. It's literally only 6x9...but she must really enjoy it, as I find her there at least once a day. As a matter of fact she's curled up in it right now! lol Gotta love felines! =D
